Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

New York Times best-selling author Kathie Lee Gifford reveals heartwarming, entertaining conversations between people and personalities who both agree and disagree about who Jesus is, his role throughout history, and his presence in our lives today.

For decades, Kathie Lee has had deep conversations about her faith with anyone who is interested in talking about it. What she discovered early on is most people are very willing to talk about Jesus: atheists, agnostics, Scientologists, Jews, brokenhearted Catholics, confused Baptists, Pentecostals, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Hindus alike. 

While some of the people Kathie Lee has spoken with do not share her belief that Jesus is the Messiah - as prophesied for centuries by prophets in the Hebrew scriptures - they nonetheless have a universal fascination with him. This singular man who lived more than 2,000 years ago, and never traveled more than 100 miles from where he was born, managed to change the entire world. Even the way we delineate history (BC/AD) comes from his short 33 years of life.

In The Jesus I Know, Kathie Lee shares cherished conversations that she’s had with others who find Jesus to be an ancient historical figure who somehow continues to be an undeniably magnetic, relevant presence in the modern world. Those conversations include:

  • Actors like Kristin Chenoweth and Cynthia Garrett, with stories of Craig Ferguson and Kevin Costner
  • Newsmakers and news personalities like Kris Jenner, Megyn Kelly, Jason Kennedy, and Janice Dean
  • Performers like Chynna Phillips Baldwin, Brian Welch, Jimmy Allen, and Jimmy Wayne
  • Hitmakers like Louis York and David Pomeranz
  • As well as those coming from other faith traditions.

Using Kathie Lee’s favorite Scripture passages as scaffolding, these thought-provoking exchanges will bring his teachings to life before your very eyes. 

A Scripture reference list is available in the audiobook companion PDF download. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not Jesus

Although there are many great stories, most do not represent the real Jesus or a real PERSONAL relationship with Jesus. Too many stories are “Me and Jesus got our own thing going.”

Scripturally they do need somebody to tell them what it’s all about. Maybe Kathie Lee should tell them. They are her closest friends.

I do pray each of these people will truly find the real Jesus and serve Him. And YES, worship Him. You can do no other if you realize what hHe did for you. Died for me, you, us! But it’s not lip service or passive. It REQUIRES commitment the THE King of kings and Lord of lords.

A little out of touch with regular folks

Although some of her stories and biblical references are relevant it seems to me that it would've been more effective to get stories from more everyday people that are living in the real world. She interviewed celebrities and other individuals who really don't understand the struggle of where their next meal is coming from or how to pay the electric bill or if they're going to lose their home. When listening to the audiobook it sounds choppy, fake, and almost forced Conversations.

Thank you Kathie Lee

I loved this book. I love that Kathie Lee’s faith is so grounded and deep and honest yet always humble and kind. I love that she had discussions with so many people who all had a different story to tell. I wish that the actual people read their own words….it would have felt more authentic and more like a conversation rather than a presentation. But it was nice to hear Kathie Lee’s true voice and I thought this book was beautiful.

I needed the reminder

I grew up Catholic and like so many went onward with a busy life. Although strong morals and giving have been a theme throughout my life, the intimacy with Jesus has been lacking. Time for a change. Thank you.

Beautiful

I wasn’t five minutes into the intro before tears began to fall. This book, narrated by the author, will evoke feelings one may not have acknowledged for years. Certain parts of it touched me in a way I hope not to forget. While I understand it would have been difficult to round up each participant to narrate their own testimony, it was the only thing that would have improved the listening experience for me. God bless you, KLG!
